COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ridgeway FES bottle matures in a similar way to vintage port. Roasted malts and leaf hops initially provide an aroma of breakfast coffee and fresh spices that gradually fades to reveal licorice, caramel and raisin notes that are products of the ageing process. Beneath all this change sits a solid and resilient backbone of bitter English hop. Satisfyingly foreign. You might even imagine the glow of the peat fire?

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Pours black, with a small, creamy light tan head. Smells of mild roast, creamy chocolate, and dark malts. Get some dark fruits in there too. The flavor is medium-bodied, good dose of creamy chocolate, some dark fruit, and a larger malt presence. The roast really isnt hat noticeable in the in the flavor, but it seems to be pretty balanced. Has kind of a nutty flavor in the aftertaste, which turns into chocolate. Not bad.
